GMDA developing sewage treatment plant in industrial area of Sector 34

first_imgGurugram: The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) is developing a 20 MLD common effluent treatment plant (CETP) in Sector 34 to make sure that the sewage does not enter into the stormwater drains. The authority has already invited agencies to prepare the detailed project report (DPR) of the plant.According to sources in the GMDA, there are a number of polluting industries in Sector 34 without a functional treatment plant. A few months earlier, GMDA had also found some industries releasing waste into the drains from the area. “The plan will help us address releasing of industrial waste into the stormwater drains,” said a GMDA official. He added that the land for the project has already been earmarked and will be provided by the Haryana State Industry and Infrastructure Corporation.

The cost and time required to complete this project would be known only after the DPR has been prepared. The project was also discussed during the previous authority meeting held by GMDA in June in Chandigarh,” the official added. Many industries in Gurgaon-Manesar industrial areas have been fined by the Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) for releasing untreated water into the drains. While HSIIDC already has a 55 MLD CETP in Manesar, there is no CETP in Udyog Vihar industrial areas. “Most of industries in Udyog Vihar are non-polluting industries and the ones that require a plant have an individual one,” he added.last_img
